Chemists uniquely understand how to manipulate matter. Chemists have been responsible for deeply understanding the material world and how it functions. More importantly, perhaps, they have also played a significant role in creating the material basis of our society and economy.

Building on this unique role in society, current chemists are faced with a pressing question: how we can preserve and increase the pace of innovation fundamentally supported and enhanced by the chemical sciences while not adversely affecting human health and the environment? There is substantial evidence to suggest that this is not a genuine conundrum and that evidence is found in the field of green chemistry.
